CBC Radio 3 Bucky Awards Part II...!



Okay okay...
Who out of all of you remembers this post all those many days ago...?
Well the Bucky Awards came and went just before Christmas...
I obviously listened live on the internet...
I had a coffee in one hand...
A cigarette in the other...
And my laptop on full volume...
CBC Radio 3 is based in Vancouver and the Bucky's started at 12pm their time...
So it kicked off at 8pm my time...
3 hours of glorious music and interviews with the winners...
They were as follows:


Catchiest Hook - Buck 65 "Indestructable Sam"
Best Sweatin' to the Indies Workout Song - Chromeo "Fancy Footwork"
Best Song Title - The Wet Secrets "Grow Your Own F*cking Moustache Asshole"
Best Falsetto - Joel Plaskett Emergency "Fashionable People"
Best Rap - Abdominal "Pedal Pusher"
Best Lyric - The Weakerthans "Civil Twilight"
Best Reason to Learn French - We Are Wolves "Magique"
Best Gang Vocals - Tokyo Police Club "Your English is Good"
Best New Band Name - Said the Whale
Best Song to Listen to in the Fetal Position - Emily Haines & the Soft Skeleton "Doctor Blind"
Most Unpronounceable Name - Basia Bulat
Best Bass Line - Tokyo Police Club "Your English is Good"
Best Yacht Rock - Patrick Watson "Drifters"
Best Road-Trip Song - Two Hours Traffic "Backseat Sweetheart"
Song Most Likely to be a Future Classic - Feist "1234"


But the best award of the entire night was an honorary one.
I was posting on the CBC blog along with the real Canadians whilst listening to the show...
The mighty Grant Lawrence - presenter on CBC Radio 3 and the Bucky Awards Show created a special award for me as I was blogging and listening from abroad...

Yes, that is correct.
Yours truly was given the award for BEST WANNABE CANADIAN...
It's my 15 minutes...!
I have my 15 minutes of glorious wannabe Canadian Fame!

Ah Peter. You don't need CBC to give you that award. You should know by now that me and the lads have always considered you a wannabe!!! :p

nikki said...

awwwww. well done you!

Pedro said...

Seriously, my fifteen minutes of fame starts fucking here!
:D

The Major said...

Excellent! That's a very good story. And you know that it's a national pastime for canadians to name famous people from Canada. You ought to try it, once they've started there's no stopping them.
Soon they'll be throwing Pedro in the mix.
I guess i could run for best wannabe Irish myself since only Irish people read my blog.

In your honour and live from Vancouver, Canada...

there can't possibly be anyone more deserving.

Pedro said...

Major - Canadians are the greatest creatures on earth. Don't worry, you wont have to run for the Wannabe Irish award, there's no other contenders. You win it hands-down.

Jim - I didn't know what to expect when I copy & pasted that link. Very - very clever post though my man. I used to fancy Mel B when I was like 10.

Red - It's about time the Canadians started to acknowledge how much of an Ambassador I am for their culture on my blog.

jack said...

I'm only playing Pedro. You're not really Irish. Your birth cert might say you are but deep down we all know that you are indeed one of us.

Jim Dubh said...

I expect that its a good thing that I would need to Google her name to see which one she is!

Anyway, enough about them! Whaddabout Feist? :-)
